Jammed Packed Boxes This Week

We are back from vacation and ready to end July with a huge box of produce and hopefully we would miss another week of blogging for the CSA.

John and Anna must really be busy because there wasn't a recipe in our newsletter this week.  I can understand why now looking at all the veggies in the box.  WOW!

Warm and humid describes the weather in Hillsboro these days.  They did receive a surprise rain that  helped cool things down just a bit.  John and the boys are harvesting onions and putting them on the drying racks to dry so they then can be put in the CSA boxes.  Looks like we might be getting a little sweet corn and some potatoes in next week's box.  Oh, my gosh, I can't wait!

How should you store potatoes?  Keep them in a cool, dry place.  If they get too much light they will turn green.  Do not store them in the refrigerator.  Also, don't store them near apples because it may alter the taste.

There is an abundance of tomatoes for canning right now.  These tomatoes don't make the grade to be pretty table tomatoes so they are used for canning.  If anyone wishes to order some just email Rue at cedarmorefarm@gmail.com and let him know how many to tell John and Anna to send you.  They are selling them for $.50 a pound.


  1. Look. I don't know who made the insanely delicious chocolate cake krispie dessert this week but they need a big award. My only complaint is that they only sent four large pieces instead of a whole sheet pan worth, haha! Keep up the great work, Cedarmore CSA!!!

  2. I will have to agree. They are beyond sooooo good!
